Proﬁles allow you to save the settings for almost any analysis operation in Geneious Prime so they can be loaded later or shared with others. Eg. the recommended trimming parameters for your organization can be saved as a proﬁle and then shared on the Shared Database for everyone to use.
The operation settings button appears in the bottom-left corner of any options window. Click on this button to reset to defaults, load a proﬁle, save a new proﬁle or manage your existing proﬁles, as described below.
To create a proﬁle, set the options up the way you want, click the operation settings button then choose Save Current Settings. You can then enter a name for your proﬁle and choose whether it is shared. For a description of shared proﬁles see the section on sharing proﬁles.
When you save a proﬁle it is attached to the particular analysis window that you have open. Eg. if you save a proﬁle for Alignment it can only be loaded for Alignment, not for Assembly.
To load a proﬁle, click the operation settings button and choose Load Proﬁle and click on the name of the proﬁle you want to load. The settings for the operation will immediately update to reﬂect the proﬁle.
Note: Sometimes when you load a proﬁle the settings may not exactly match what was saved. This is because the available settings can change depending on what type of documents you have selected.
Click on Manage Proﬁles under Load Proﬁle to see a list of proﬁles with options for deleting, editing, importing and exporting proﬁles. See sharing proﬁles section below for more on import and export.
There are two ways to share option proﬁles:
